"Smack Your Mama" Chickpea Salsa Verde

I have a new love in my life, Missy Koti Chickpea Flatbread; a spicy blend of chickpeas, seasonings and whole wheat goodness, hand-stretched to perfection. Flavorful simplicity enhanced by the simple addition of a little fragrant extra virgin olive oil and a smattering of kosher salt.

I simply fry the flatbread in olive oil until a golden crispiness develops on the outer edges and then drain the bread on paper towels for just a few seconds . . . that's it! They're ready in minutes and truly delicious all by themselves as a snack instead of pita or other chips.

But I'm not one to leave things alone and thus began my journey to create a flavorful spread that delivers the "smack-factor"!

Like we say in the south-"so good, it makes you wanna to smack your mama!"

So here it is . . .

Chick Pea Salsa Verde

1 can of chickpeas (no liquid)

1 glove of fresh garlic (minced)

2 tbsp olive oil

2 -3 tsps of a fine mayonnaise

1 anchovy filet

2 tbsp of flat leaf parsley

1 tbsp cilantro

1 tsp fig balsamic vinegar

Dash of Greek Seasoning

1 tsp of fresh lime

Blend until chunky smooth! Adjust the seasonings and enjoy.
